Terrorist attacks have been as unrelenting as ever. On March 22 a 52-year-old man stabbed a police officer after mowing down pedestrians near the British Houses of Parliament. The attack resulted in five deaths and several injuries. One of the slain was a mother of young children on her way to pick them up from school.
On April 3 a young Kyrgyz bomber hit a subway station in St. Petersburg, Russia, killing 14.
On April 7 a disaffected Uzbek, rejected for Swedish residency because of extremist sympathies, drove a truck through a Stockholm crowd, killing four shoppers and strollers.
